  1. In my opinion, everything is a little different, stones live in a different time dimension, and the fact that for us 1000 years, for them a fraction of a second, and they are like water that has been sharply hit, the surface tension makes them solid, but in fact they are drops, just time goes differently for them

  2. What you are talking about is called a non-Newtonian liquid) Mix starch with water, pour it into a ball and indulge.
    And the stone is solid, it keeps its shape.

  3. Hmm, first, to test its softness(or not), you need to put it in zero gravity. After all, touch is not only the interaction of our fingers with an object, but also the touch of a stone or earth. So is the heaviness of the dust (haha). In general, then think about it.

  4. Maybe it's true that when you touch a stone, it hardens. But if no one has ever taken him by surprise, then he also has an instant reaction, or telepathy.

    In addition, there is a premise in the question that touching brings the stone out of calm. Maybe if you hold it calmly in the palm of your hand for long enough, it will also calm down and soften.

  5. “As for the nature of matter, Locke (like Kant) readily admitted that it is transcendent and unknowable. And Locke divided the properties of the cognizable part of matter into two classes: primary and secondary services. Primary properties do not depend on perception. For example, a rock is hard whether you touch it or not. But color, a secondary quality, depends on the complex process of vision. At night, all cats are gray, and in total darkness they are not even gray.
    Without denying the benefits of this distinction, Berkeley clearly understood that in some deeper sense all qualities of things are secondary. How do we know a rock is hard if we haven't touched it? In fact, everything we know about material objects, we have learned through our senses.”

  6. Nice try, but no. Stone is an inorganic substance. In principle, he cannot develop the muscles to somehow strain. Otherwise, it would no longer be a rock, but some kind of mollusk or other invertebrate.�

    Also, it would be possible to assume that the stone consists of some kind of substance that changes its aggregate state under the influence of some hypothetical human biofield? But it is easy to check whether this is true if you throw one stone at another. In addition, the composition of the stones has been studied. They definitely consist of substances that change the aggregate state under the influence of completely different forces.
